"Spooky? Do You Think I'm Spooky?" The Year in Review

Thursday, December 31, 2015

Another year is in the bag, and with it, thousands of pages of Pathfinder Roleplaying Game content, ranging from new a whole new range of psychic classes in Occult Adventures to facing off against the demons of the Abyss in Pathfinder Adventure Card Game: Wrath of the Righteous! Here's a few highlights from 2015.

Pathfinder Adventure Path

Yes, I was attracted in my younger years to the occult.

Deep within the Mindspin Mountains, a big problem stirred, kicking off the Giantslayer Adventure Path with "Battle of Bloodmarch Hill"! As you might surmise from the title, you face a whole lotta giants in this AP, from hill to storm and pretty much all kinds in-between. The Order of the Amber Die ran the entire Giantslayer Adventure Path in six sessions, one per volume, and we shared their exploits on the blog previously. This year also saw the start of the 17th Adventure Path with Hell's Rebels, which included the milestone 100th volume, "A Song of Silver"!

Pathfinder Roleplaying Game

Jefe, what is a plethora? Four hardcover Pathfinder Roleplaying Game books, that's what. The Strategy Guide, Pathfinder Unchained, Occult Adventures, and Bestiary 5 all made its way out to fans everywhere this year, bringing a host of advice, new rules options, psychic characters, and critters a-plenty for everybody's game. The wyrmwraith proved pretty popular, winning our Bestiary 5 Battle Royale contest!

Pathfinder Campaign Setting

Pairing nicely along with Occult Adventures is setting-specific releases of Occult Realms and Occult Bestiary! Esoteric horrors and secrets await in those tomes, but there's also Inner Sea Races, a hardcover compilation expanding upon the many members (and possible player characters) of the Inner Sea! The Inner Sea Monster Codex gives a heapin' helpin' of new options for the game master as well (along with the return of the Pathfinder Flip-Mat Classics and a redesigned Combat Pad).

Pathfinder Module

Don't rest your head.

You may not be aware of this...but we kinda like adventure 'round these parts! "Daughters of Fury" was penned by RPG Superstar 2014 winner Victoria Jaczko, while Nicolas Logue returned with "Feast of Dust", and Master of Mysticism Brandon Hodge penned "The House of Hook Street" (which just might make you afraid to close your eyes at night). If you're looking for something level- or region-specific, don't miss out on the Pathfinder Adventure Finder, which includes hundreds of adventures from Paizo and third-party Pathfinder publishers!

Pathfinder Player Companion

There were quite a few fan-favorite releases for players this year, including (but certainly not limited to) Cohorts & Companions, Melee Tactics Toolbox, and Weapon Master's Handbook! Players picking up a copy of Occult Adventures might also want to grab Occult Origins, which provides new spells, feats, and rituals that tie into some of Golarion's history.

Pathfinder Adventure Card Game

The world-changing events of the Wrath of the Righteous Adventure Path made for an epic conversion to the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, and the Season of the Righteous brought the Wrath of the Righteous Adventure Card Game to organized play. From lowly mortals dabbling in affairs beyond their ken to challenging demon lords in their home realms, Wrath of the Righteous is not for the faint-hearted heroes!

And in conclusion, here's some more art from this year's releases!

Woo, there's one of those ultra-rare appearances by Reiko!

(Of course, she might be in many other illustrations, just you can't see her...)

I'll second the cheers for Reiko.

Now we need some illustrations with Enora, Kess, and Andowyn. All we have is "Nocticula's Attention" where Kyra is the focus of the illustration and you can see Enora's cloak to the right.

What are you talking about?

I'm digging the Flynn Rider vest. ^_~
